The Minnesota Twins placed outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a left rib contusion.

The move was retroactive to Saturday, with the Twins making a corresponding move by returning outfielder Trevor Larnach from the 10-day IL.

Buxton, 29, was injured June 1 when he was hit by a pitch from the Cleveland Guardians' Tanner Bibee during the fourth inning of the Twins' 7-6 home win.

Buxton is batting .220 with nine doubles, 10 home runs, 23 RBIs, a .325 on-base percentage and .445 slugging percentage in 50 games.

Larnach, 26, missed the Twins' last 13 games with pneumonia and went on a rehab assignment to Triple-A St. Paul, where in three games he went 1-for-9 with a homer. Before going on the IL, Larnach batted .215 with five homers, 27 RBIs, a .316 OBP and .392 slugging percentage in 39 games.
